Happy International Women's Day!

Sisterhood is [still] powerful!

Here are a few quotes to start the day with... please add any other favourites you have :o)

Because I am a woman, I must make unusual efforts to succeed. If I fail, no one will say, "She doesn't have what it takes." They will say, "Women don't have what it takes."
~Clare Boothe Luce

I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a door mat or a prostitute.
~Rebecca West, "Mr Chesterton in Hysterics: A Study in Prejudice", The Clarion, 14 Nov 1913, reprinted in The Young Rebecca, 1982

Women have been taught that, for us, the earth is flat, and that if we venture out, we will fall off the edge.
~Author Unknown

The emotional, sexual, and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says, "It's a girl."
~Shirley Chisholm

Women belong in the house... and the Senate.
~Author Unknown

I think it's about time we voted for senators with breasts. After all, we've been voting for boobs long enough.
~Clarie Sargent, Arizona senatorial candidate

Never let the hand you hold, hold you down.
~Author Unknown

Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.
~Faith Whittlesey

I wish someone would have told me that, just because I'm a girl, I don't have to get married.
~Marlo Thomas

The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it.
~Roseanne Barr

Feminism is the radical notion that women are people. ~Cheris Kramarae and Paula Treichler

I am woman! I am invincible! I am pooped!
~Author Unknown

I, with a deeper instinct, choose a man who compels my strength, who makes enormous demands on me, who does not doubt my courage or my toughness, who does not believe me naïve or innocent, who has the courage to treat me like a woman.
~Anaïs Nin

Man endures pain as an undeserved punishment; woman accepts it as a natural heritage.
~Author Unknown

"I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express sentiments that differentiate me from a door mat or a prostitute."

Here is some more:

A man's got to do what a man's got to do. A woman must do what he can't.
- Rhonda Hansome

In politics, if you want anything said, ask a man -if you want anything done, ask a woman.

Thanks Kroika for the thread !

Here is a few of my favorite quote's

If you want something said, ask a man; if you want something done, ask a woman.
Margaret Thatcher

Every woman has the right to be beautiful.
Elizabeth Arden

Courage is the most important of all the virtues, because without courage you can't practice any other virtue consistently. You can practice any virtue erratically, but nothing consistently without courage.
Maya Angelou

You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You must do the thing which you think you cannot do.

-Eleanor Roosevelt

BBBeeevvvv!!!!!!!!!!

So good to see you too. And thank you for your unfailing support...you should know, it really does make a difference...

And here is a quote from one of my favourite women and the one that speaks to me in loud whispers....

'Loneliness is never more cruel than when it is felt in close propinquity with someone who has ceased to communicate.' Germaine Greer

Or maybe it is more a scream than a whisper...sigh

hugs to all you wonderful women

HTML code. You can google it and learn how, too. But SC has asked that we reserve all formatting (bold, italics, underlining, colours) for "special occasions" and not go wild with it. Especially not to put it in thread *titles*.

go ahead and have some fun :o)
